Our churches cost around £100,000 in total to run each year; or around £2,000 every week. Roughly:
- 35% goes on the cost of running and maintaining the buildings
- 15% goes on the cost of services, outreach and supporting our partner organisations
- 45% is given to the diocese towards the cost of having a vicar
- 5% goes on other expenses
We cover a third of the costs of running the church through hiring out the halls, but the bulk of our income comes through contributions from our members.
For more information about how Gift Aid could increase the amount we receive without costing you any more, see this HMRC page.
